With a new album hitting the ground in July, a tour with
Kutless and a single climbing the charts, The Museum is a
new face you don’t want to miss! CCM caught up with them
to get the inside scoop.
CCM: Where did your name come from?
The name began when Josh Kirk (drummer) went on a
mission trip to Romania just as we were forming the
band going into 2008. In traveling to Romania, Josh
knew little about the country, but
quickly found out they were a
communist nation until 1989, when
a few Christians gathered in prayer
& protest claiming, “we believe
God exists!” This quickly turned to
rioting and over a couple of weeks
time, this led to the overthrow of
communism known as the Romanian
Revolution! After hearing the story,
Josh was taken to see “The Revolution
Museum” which contained humble
evidence and testimonies of the
revolution. It was amazing to see how
a few people that stood up for what
they believed in had such a giant role
in changing the entire course of a
The experience left a great impact
on Josh and as he returned to the
states we quickly decided to be called
“The Museum.” As we create and
record music & travel city to city, we
realize it’s the things we leave behind
that make the difference. We hope our music and our
ministry will be marked by the evidence that Christ has
done a revolution in our hearts and we’re forever changed
because of it.
CCM: Tell us about the new album.
It’s a very melody & guitar driven pop/rock album. We
aimed to create melodic hooks to complement thoughtful
lyrics. The overall message is centered on the love of
Christ & our call to be His love to a broken world. We hope
it’s a message that challenges the Church to get outside
the walls and live out the words we sing!
CCM: What do you think is the role of the local church?
We absolutely believe that the local church is the hope
of the world. Far too often the church is known for what
we’re against rather than what we’re for. Go out and love
and serve your community with open arms. Invite them
inside your walls and show them a God who loves them
regardless of what they’ve done or what they look like!
